Million Mile SecretsEmily Gets 50,000 EXTRA Bonus Points For Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card! [Expired]Million Mile Secrets Team

Signing-up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.

Update: This deal is dead because Chase is no longer granting an additional 50,000 bonus points.

I just checked Emily’s secure message inbox, and Chase has given Emily an  extra 50,000 bonus points for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card.

That means that she will get 100,000 bonus points in total!

We will be transferring these to Hyatt and staying at the Park Hyatt in Paris.

That’s 107,000 100,000 Hyatt points with the 7% annual point bonus or almost 5 nights at the Park Hyatt in Paris which would otherwise have cost us $5,000 (which we would NEVER have paid!)

Update: The Chase Sapphire Preferred no longer gives you a 7% annual point bonus.

Here’s an excerpt from the message sent by Chase.

“I would like to inform that, there was an offer to receive
50,000 bonus points after you made purchases of $3,000.00.

However as a gesture of our commitment I have added
additional 50,000 bonus points. This adjustment will
reflect on your 07/16/2011 billing statement.”

100,000 Bonus Points Chase Sapphire-3

50,000 additional bonus points makes me very happy!

I don’t know how much longer this will last,  if you’ve already got the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, write NOW to Chase and ask for the additional 50,000 bonus points (mention offer S6V).

Here’s what I wrote to Chase yesterday (please excuse the grammatical errors and redundancies – I wanted our extra points ASAP!):

Dear Chase Representative,

I just last week received my new Chase Sapphire Preferred card with a 50,000 sign up bonus of 50,000 points after spending $3,000.

Today, I learned of a new offer S6V which promises 100,000 bonus points. I would be very grateful if you would extend the 100,000 bonus point offer S6V to me as well since I just applied for the Chase Sapphire card.

I have been a long time customer of Chase, and have had my primary checking and credit card accounts with Chase for many years and hope to maintain them for many more years to come!

Kind Regards,


I kept the letter short and got straight to the point.  I also reminded Chase of Emily’s long-term relationship with them!

100,000 Bonus Points Chase Sapphire - 1

Bottom Line:  As of now, Chase appears to be willing to honor the additional 100,000 bonus points offer for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card if you send them a secure message.

I don’t know how much longer this will last – especially once the corporate offices, which are closed over the weekend, open again on Monday.

Write to Chase now! Tell them how happy you are with their service and products and how you’d like to be considered for the extra 50,000 bonus points.

Try again (4 to 5 times), if you’re not successful the first time.  You only have an additional 50,000 bonus points at stake.  And if you don’t ask for the additional points, you certainly won’t get them!

Have you got the additional 50,000 bonus points?  Tell us about it in the comments!

Daraius, I have a question about how long Chase UR bonus points take to post to the UR account after the minimum spend is met. Do they only post after a billing cycle (within a certain number of days/weeks) or could they post as soon as I meet the minimum spend, even if mid-billing cycle? If it takes a while to post, have you heard of folks being able to get them to rush the deposit of points? (e.g. if I have a reservation I want to make soon). Thanks as always.

@Thomas – They usually post a few days after the statement in which the minimum spending is completed closes. They don’t post mid cycle. You could call and ask to move your statement closing date earlier, but it may not work. You could call and ask if they can make a deposit of the points, but I don’t they’ll do that!


I have received chase card last year ,but till now I’m yet to receive any rewards.

Can anybody confirm to me the 1st 6 digit of Chase Sapphire Preferred card

I think I’m missing something .

What address and whom do I write to??

Million Mile Secrets

@S-May – If you have the regular Chase Sapphire (not Preferred) card, you may be able to apply for the Sapphire Preferred and get the 50K sign up bonus. You could send a secure message from your Chase account, but Chase was giving the extra 50K points for only a few days last year. But it doesn’t hurt to ask. Log onto your Chase.com account, click on “Customer Center” and on the left side scroll down until you see “Secure Message Center.” You can also get another 50K Ultimate Rewards points from the Chase Ink Bold card if Chase doesn’t match you.

I just read that Emily wrote to Chase to request points rather than called. I have had a chase card for 20 years that was changed to sapphire when I already had 100,000 points on it. The “new” redemption rates made my points worth MUCH less. I called after reading some posts and they added 10K points to my account but I still think they should at least offer a match of 50K new customers get. Do you think writing might get a better response??

@Jenny – Maybe this is too late response to help you, but I’m in the same situation and talked to Chase CSR and found a very good option. Call to convert your regular Sapphire card to a Chase Freedom card, the existing rewards points will be converted 1:1. Then apply for a new Chase Sapphire Preferred card, you will get the sign-up bonus points if you have not taken the bonus promo with your regular Sapphire card earlier. Keep both the cards, and Freedom points are freely transferable to Sapphire points for redemption on airline or hotels. Freedom also has 5% earnings in rotating categories and no annual fee.

@Kroozer – Thanks for digging out this option! I
